I know it's just a guideline, but anyhow...
8.1 Being Kind to Porters
8.2.2 When to do a source NMU if you are a porter
"[...] However, if you are a porter doing an NMU for `unstable', the
above guidelines for porting should be followed, with two variations.
Firstly, the acceptable waiting period - the time between when the
bug is submitted to the BTS and when it is OK to do an NMU - is seven
days for porters working on the unstable distribution. This period
can be shortened if the problem is critical and imposes hardship on
the porting effort, at the discretion of the porter group. (Remember,
none of this is Policy, just mutually agreed upon guidelines.)"
